Did you know that a single disposable pad or tampon takes longer to degrade than the lifespan of the person who wore it, in fact, it can take up to 800 years! Or that 4.3 billion disposable menstrual products are used in the UK every year equating to 200,000 tonnes of menstrual waste hitting UK landfill per year? Unlikely to come up in a pub quiz, we know, but still important.
The good news is, making the switch to more eco-friendly periods is easy.
Wear Em Out pads attach to your underwear the same way a disposable would, they have wings with double nickel-free poppers for a nice secure fit and come in Navy.
